That’s not a misprint, sports fans, SD Rostra’s own Richard Rider changed his registration last night, from Libertarian to Republican at the annual Lincoln-Reagan dinner at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. Your correspondent wouldn’t have believed it if he had not seen Rider sign the document live on center stage, as 600 Republicans simultaneously cheered and pinched themselves . “Was that for Real?” we asked GOP Vice Chairman Michael McSweeney. The no-nonsense Mr. McSweeney affirmed it was the real thing.
We could not bring ourselves to break the startling news to Rostra’s Gayle Falkenthal, so we’ve asked her close friend Mario B. to handle that assignment with maximum diplomacy. He’s just the boy who can do it.
